To the Niagara Frontier Summary

To the Niagara Frontier: Poems New and Selected by Jon Glover

A fourth collection of poems by the well-known northern poet, including several of the poems which appeared in the author's other work, "Our Photographs". "Our Photographs" follows a man leaving 19th-century Scotland for life in the United States, evoking his reactions and those of the people he encounters. The new poems go further, probing the loss and rediscovery of identity, the way place and history relate and the instability of language in trying to record our experiences with precision and authenticity. America, especially the upstate New York invoked in the title, represents a refuge, but also a place of violence. Glover experiments with his language, incorporating prose and verse.
